Youth Town’s Jericho sits on 250 acres in south Madison County with a 30-acre lake, full size gymnasium and a challenge ropes course. Jericho uses an evidence-based curriculum and an adventure-based approach to present young men with an alternate way of life to drug use and drug culture. Eden is located on 17 acres in the Beech Bluff community of West Tennessee in a natural setting perfect for a young woman to have time to be with God and be with herself. Like Jericho’s programming, Eden’s programming is gender responsive. Learn more by emailing ppratt(at)youthtown(dot)net or calling 731-988-5251.
